Pottery mark query - Simple blue crown with 'A A' below:- I have a china Siamese cat figure, playing with a slipper, that has no name or embossed stamped number on its base, just a very simple blue crown with 2 capital letter 'A's below it. These look like they may have been printed or stamped on under the top glaze, rather than hand painted.

The figure is about 3 and a 1/2 inches tall.

Can anyone make a guess at which maker this is from or any other details about it?

Many thanks.

Sarah

Hi

Many thanks for submitting, and hope you are finding the site useful.

This might be yet another pottery mark of Japanese importers Arnart - but that's just a theory based on the A A stamp. In fact, the modeling, crown mark and make do have a distinct German quality about them.

We have had other submissions with a similar looking gold crown on small tea sets which the experts thought were European not Far East.

I will publish your submission and with a bit of luck, one of our knowledgeable contributors will help out on this one – (check out the comments section below for replies).

the A A Importing company

I have found out more about the A A Importing label. On their website, they say they specialise in antique reproductions. Perhaps someone based in the US can give them a ring and ask about which country they source their ceramics from - is it Germany or is it Far East - or both?

Blue Crown
by: Thomas

I have a ballerina figurine with what looks like the same blue crown as you. Underneath it is some symbols I can't recognize. However, it gives a city (I'm assuming a city) and country. I can't quite make out the city, but it begins with a D and the country is Germany.
